The inaugural New Perspectives on Irish English Conference was held in 2010 in University College Dublin. Since then, NPIE conferences have generally taken place on a bi-annual basis.
Prior to the NPIE meetings, the Celtic Englishes conferences, organised by Hildegard Tristram R.I.P. of the University of Potsdam, were the meeting place of researchers on Irish English. The first of these was held in 1994; the last in 2004 (cf. https://people.unil.ch/patriciaronan/files/2016/04/The-Celtic-Englishes-IV.pdf).
Upcoming NPIE conference
NPIE-7, University College Cork, 8-10 June 2022, organised by Nicola Bessell (University College Cork)
The formal call for papers is to be announced in January 2022 and abstracts will go through an abstract committee. The conference will follow the usual format of a 20 minute talk with 5-10 minutes for questions.
